Gary Johnson Answers Tough Libertarian QuestionsSubmitted by Marc Clair on Tue, 10/02/2012 - 17:14
Yesterday afternoon, good friend of the site, The New American Media’s Brian Engelman, hosted a special edition of his “Agree to Disagree” program in order to interview Libertarian Presidential Candidate, Gary Johnson. Brian was kind enough to pass along some of my questions as well as one from fellow Lions of Liberty writer John Odermatt. I wanted to push Governor Johnson a bit on some core libertarian values.
My questions for Governor Johnson were as follows:
“Do you believe in the non-aggression principle?”
“Do you believe the government has the right to tax its citizens for merely living within it’s borders?”
“Do you believe you have a chance to win? If not, what is the purpose of your campaign?”
“Who is your favorite libertarian author?”
John also had a question on drug legalization:
“Your stance on legalizing Marijuana is well documented, but I’m curious to know the ideology that leads you to this result. Do you believe that an individual own their body and the government is overreaching by attempting to dictate what an individual ingests? Would you legalize all drugs?"
